Dolores Huerta, a lifelong community activist and pioneering feminist, is best known for co-founding the United Farm Workers of America. She also came up with the movement's famous slogan: "Sí, Se Puede," which translates to "Yes, We Can." As part of the Oakland Symphony's "Playlist" series, Huerta curated a list of songs that have inspired her work and that the symphony will performed on Friday. We'll talk with Huerta about the songs she chose, her activism and the role of music in political movements.

Guests:

Dolores Huerta, cofounder, United Farm Workers; president, Dolores Huerta Foundation
